Chamber's Honorary Mayor Campaign is underway

FALLBROOK – The Honorary Mayor Campaign, a fundraiser for the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce, has begun. Chamber staff are asking each local non-profit organization in the Chamber to nominate a candidate from their membership. The benefits to the organization are abundant.

By participating, the organization supports the candidate and provides the assistance they need. The organization receives exposure throughout the campaign and highlighted exposure if its candidate wins.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, Aug. 12, at 3 p.m. Once a nomination is submitted to the Chamber office, each candidate can immediately begin to raise as much money as they can through fundraising, donation requests and any other legal and creative means possible.

The candidate who raises the most money wins the title of Honorary Mayor of Fallbrook. That winner will be linked with their supporting organization throughout the year.

Money raised through The Honorary Mayor Campaign goes back into the community for other programs and overall support. The Chamber will split the proceeds 20/80, with 20 percent going to each organization and 80 percent going to the Chamber.

All monies raised must be collected and submitted to Levering & Hvasta CPAs no later than Friday, Sept. 9 at 3 p.m. The winner and their organization will be announced at the State of the Chamber Dinner on Sept. 21 at Zion Lutheran School.

The Chamber is proud to announce the two candidates thus far: Tami Donnelly and Marc Sigmon. Donnelly is partnered with the Fallbrook Senior Citizens Service Club and Sigmon is representing the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1924. Their fundraising events will be posted on the Chamber website soon.

For all inquiries, call the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce office at (760) 728-5845.
